J. Cole Confirms Trey Songz Single, Still Lacks A Release Date

DJ Semtex gets J. Cole to confirm a possible collab with Trey Songz for his debut which still has no release date.

The release date and possible next single from J. Cole’s upcoming debut both seem to be undetermined, and as such, Cole hasn’t been giving out a lot of information about the album. However, during a recent interview, DJ Semtex managed to find out about a completed single featuring Trey Songz, and J. Cole did at least acknowledge the single’s existence.

“Aw man, I don’t know anything about that,” Cole answered, when Semtex brought the collaboration up. “I don’t know when…every time I give anybody a date on anything, it never happens. So I just kind of let things flow how they’re going to flow. But that song, as of right now, exists and it’s very good. I can say that.”

A Trey Songz cameo could certainly boost the potential for a crossover hit, and J. Cole has previously stated that one of the delays on his album is waiting until he can capitalize on the largest possible fan base. And while some of the delays are beyond his control, Cole said he’s also keeping a few things under wraps on purpose. He added that he would like to work with Kanye West again after completing the album. The pair previously worked together on the G.O.O.D. Friday release, “Looking For Trouble.”

“From when you heard [the album] last, it’s probably changed,” J. Cole told Semtex. It hasn’t drastically changed, and even some of the songs I played for you won’t make it just because I’ve done better songs. It just keeps changing until they give me a release date and a date I have to turn it in…it’ll keep changing and getting better.”

    y'all comparing jcole to drake the big difference between the two of em is that drake is not a sell out he is naturally mainstream that's his style, j cole is not and if he goes mainstream it's gonna feel like he sold out. but i sure will buy his album because his mixtapes are the shit. j cole needs to fuck with the right producers just like jay z fucked with the neptunes, kanye west, timbaland, just blaze, swizz beats etc

  • Wu-Tang Forever

    Looking forward to it

    NB4R Cole goes pop lol!

    He got to capitalize on momentum though. You only get a couple of shots in this rap game.. And thats it

  • Real Talk

    J Cole aint even drop an album yet... Look who co-signed him so far: Doctor Dre, Nas, Lloyd Banks, and Hova. I JUST HOPE THIS LITTLE SUCCESS GASSES COLE'S HEAD. CLASSIC ALBUM AND A HIT= THE REAL DEAL. And Hip hop heads need to stop being hypocrites. They need to buy the record when it drops. Cuz that's the only way to bring back hip hop.

  • Real Talk

    Cole represents real hip hop. Hova signed J Cole and Jay Electronica for a reason. He wants to save hip hop as an art form. Your right, he does care for himself in the end. Who doesn't? It's just being smart. At the same time, Jay-Z wants to save hip hop. Rocafella was like the Young Money of this generation. RocNation is being diverse and trying to bring back hip hop. I'm from California and I've heard "Who Dat" on Power 106. So what if J Cole does a song with Trey Songz? Ladies love Trey. Ladies= sales. If this song is legit, Cole world he got em. If it aint, Cold world it is...

    "walks in"..CLASS IS IN SESSION ITS LIKE THIS..first off B SIGEL released three very solid albums under JAY-Z..HE WAS THE SECOND NIGGA SIGNED TO THE ROC..THE NIGGA KEPT GOIN TO JAIL..HE LOST ON HIS OWN..J.

COLE WANTS MAINSTREAM SUCCESS..NO RAPPER SHOULD EVER SAY THAT SHIT OUT LOUD..U MAKE THAT SHIT HAPPEN..AND LIKE SOMEBODY SAID BEFORE ME..HE IS IN A LOSE,LOSE SITUATION..THE TYPE OF FANBASE HE'S BUILDIN WONT LIKE HIS DEBUT ALBUM ANYWAY,IF ITS GOOD OR NOT..BECAUSE IT WILL MEAN HE NO LONGER BELONGS TO THEM..THEY ARE LAMES FOR THE MOST PART..IF HE MAKES AN ALBUM FULL OF HITS..HE WILL HAVE A NATION OF INTERNET GROUPIES COMPLAINING THAT HE "SOLD OUT"..UNLIKE DRAKE WHO DID JUST THAT AND WENT PLAT..HE KILLED THE "WACK" PART OF HIS FANBASE OFF WITH A "SUCCESFUL" MIXTAPE..THEY NO LONGER BECAME A FACTOR..ITS ABOUT A BALANCE..IF J COLE CAN MAKE SONGS LIKE "2FACE" AND "IN THE MORNING"..MIXED WITH A LIL BIT OF "PREMEDITATED MURDER" AND "LIGHTS PLEASE"..HE IN THE GAME..IF HE CHOOSE TO TRY TO PLEASE A BUNCH OF "YOU WAS HOT BEFORE U BLEW UP NIGGAZ"..HE WILL LOSE ALWAYS...SO WHATS GON HAPPEN..NOBODY KNOWS..BUT THAT "WHO DAT" SHIT IS WACK..HE CANT DROP AN ALBUM FULL OF THAT BULLSHIT..AND STOP USING JAY NAME IN REFERENCE TO YOUR FAVORITE RAPPERS SHORTCOMINGS..U SOUND STUPID..NO MAN CAN STOP ANOTHA MAN FROM COMING UP..IF ITS MEANT TO BE

      i'm tired of people saying drake is not lyrical, did you listen to lust for life, successful, light up etc, there isn't one way to be lyrical, lyrics are a style and drake and j cole have different style of lyrics but none of them is better than the other one, drake is full of honesty about his life, about his experiences with women, money, success, j cole is more about punch line, he probably got the best punch lines of the year on friday night lights ( just my opinion ) and he's rhymes are amazing. i personally prefer j cole and i understand why he wanna have a bigger fanbase, he look up to jay z who is apparently love by the whole country ( even miley cyrus lol) but i do think he should stop stressing so much about first week sales because that shows a lack of confidence which is never good for a rapper.

    • Life Accordin' to Dutch

      ^fuc is this dude above me talkin about CALM DOWN..LEARN HOW TO READ JO..U AINT READ SHIT I SAID MANE..U JUST MADE UP YO OWN STUPID ASS ARGUMENT..WHO SAID DUDE WASNT AIGHT..I SAID HIS SEARCHING FOR THAT "HIT" IS FUTILE..HITS HAPPEN..THEY ARE NOT TALKED ABOUT..I EVEN STATED HE HAD A COUPLE.."WHO DAT" IS NOT ONE OF THEM THO..FUC U GET OFF SAYIN IF MY DISCOGRAPHY GOES FARTHER THAN CARTER 2..OBVIOUSLY MUHFUCKA..

    • Calm Down Kid...

      Listen up there guy... first off, you need to light a dutch and chill the fuck out with all those caps. Second, to get to your retarded point, do not ever compare Cole with Drake. They are wayyyy to different as artists to compare, why would Cole go the Drake rout?? That "it" factor your talking about is Drizzy getting the girls pussies wet, must be getting yours wet as well. Now Drake has mad talent and is the only reverse sell out I've seen in my life, BUT as a rapper Drakes on the sledding hill while Cole's climbing Mt. Everest son. You see Cole is one of the very few that raps the way rap used to be... If your discography goes back past The Carter 2 then you should know what I mean. Thats why he gets mad love from every big rapper in the game, for his rapping ability.. What do they say about Drake? You must be the typically I like hearing the same three things in all of my music huh? Open your ears and expand your brain guy, rap's not only about money and bitches... Good Luck to you guy, I'll pray for ya

  • David Jones

    How is this record label not giving him a release date? They should just drop the Single with Trey Songz and record a video as soon as possible, watch Cole's brand build. He's good for 100-200K i think, with Trey songz single powering up promotion he could boost that to 300K maybe. Give him more show apperances do something! Dang, he needs a release date and a Album Title before he can get that level of anticipation they want.

      NOW THAT I THINK ABOUT THIS SHIT.. NOT ONLY DOES HE HAVE TO WAIT FOR THE WATCH THE THRONE TOUR TO END.. HE HAS TO WAIT FOR THAT WILLOW SMITH ALBUM TO DROP... GAHHHDD DAMN.. ITS GONN BE A COLD 2011 FOR COLE WORLD FANS HAHAHAHAHA... SHIT... I GOT 1 QUESTION THO... HOW THE FUCK IS IT THAT JAY ELECTRONICA BEEN ON ROC NATION FOR A COUPLE WEEKS AND ALREADY GOT A MOUNTAIN DEW COMMERCIAL.LOLLL NO ALBUM OR TOUR J.COLE DON'T EVEN GOT A ALBUM... LOLLLL!!!! A RELEASE DATE FOR THE ALBUM.. OR A RELEASE DATE FOR THE NEXT SINGLE... BOYYY THIS IS SOME SAD SHIT.. SO MUCH FOR SAVING HIP HOP.... WHO DAT WHO DAT.. I'M SITTING ON THE BENCHHH!!!

    • Who-Dat Who-Dat Bitch I'm Blowing Out Those Flames!

      Sorry but this J.Cole kid is not gonna get the extreme large fan base that he is looking for... Sorry but there are too many rap artists that are trying to either win or they are winning and have to stay winning...Drake,Wiz Khalifa,B.O.B.,Big Sean,Cyhi Da Prince,and many other artists are either fighting to get themselves a fan base,fighting to get a newer fan base,fighting to keep their fan base,or fighting to get an even larger fan base to add on to the fan base they already got...Only a small few of these artists will possibly succeed and the rest will either struggle hard or just simply fall the fuck off and be forgotten...Not all of these dudes are gonna make it and even if they do it's gonna be extremely hard for them to stay on top because you've got other new hungry artists that are coming out directly right behind them and they might just have enough potential to pull the carpet right out from under them whether they are hot or not...Don't think that Drake can't get the carpet pulled from under him and don't think that it can't happen to J.Cole either...Like I said some of these rap artists are not gonna win and some of them who've already won are not got stay winning either and that's just how this game goes...By the time J.Cole's album comes out, another new hot rap artist has enough potential to take his spot and steal the attention just enough to capitalize on it...Sorry but Hov aka Jay-Z is just completely selfish and will always care about himself only...I mean just ask yourself this question...WHY THE FUCK DOES JAY-Z & KANYE WEST HAVE TO RELEASE THIS "WATCH THE THRONE" ALBUM NEXT WEEK FOR? Shouldn't Jay have his undivided attention towards heloing J.Cole find the right strong fit for his first single and getting J.Cole's debut album prepped and ready for release to come out...Jay and Kanye already have enough money but stay savagely greedy like the lame fucks they are...'Watch The Throne' can come out at another time like say the end of this year 2011...SMH...Keep supporting your clown Jay-Hova because he's very deep rooted by D-Evils of the money because that's where his heart is and it's turning blacker than ever...The more Jay does shit like this the quicker his black ass is gonna be on his way out of the game...Plus J.Cole can't wait forever to release a debut album whether it sells low or not and he can't wait forever to release a hot single...The people are either gonna feel you or not feel you...All J.Cole can do is just put out a single and hope that it's hot and just pray...He can use Trey Songz or Justin Beiber to create a hot single all he wants to but if it doesn't stick then it's game over because that's how your clown ass boy Hova thinks...

      1. Learn to spell. Even the Gucci Troll knows how to spell but it makes it obvious he's trolling since Gucci Fans can't spell. 2. J. Cole and Drake already collaborated. They are even touring I believe.

  • SuperGucciRap

    Man fuck J. Cole. That nigga said he doesn't want any big name artists and now he's crying for one? That nigga sucks. Trey Songz is wack too. Drake sucks, Wiz Khalifa sucks, B.o.B sucks and Kid Cudi is mad wack. Do they even rap? Want a real rapper? Check out JUSTIN BIEBER. That nigga will murk all those niggaz combined.

    "See I could scream Def Jam and what they used to be But that ain't for me to say, that's for you to see (if it ain't) If not Method Man or Redman, Ghostface, Young Gunz Need I say Freeway, the proof is me Still don't believe me, then where's Peedi Peedi? They ain't really givin a fuck unless you Jeezy That's what my mind say Just know if you ain't the President or Kanye, you won't see the time of day" J. Cole is getting that same fuckin' treatment of being kept silent, it pisses me off, that Jay-Z made a label, and don't release nothing but his own shit. get the fuck out of here with this bullshit called hip hop. J. Cole diss this faggot, and end this motherfucker's career. Where's NAS at to ether someone, oh this fucker is making NIGGER MUSIC. HIP HOP DEAD, RAP-POP is that new shit! SMH

  • Anonymous

    The warm-up was the shit, Friday night lights was cool but a little to soft for my tastes. You have to be SO mainstream to sell these days that it will probably be worse then all of his mixtapes. J. Cole nice but they want him to be a star not a rapper. It will be a summer release at the earliest.

  • Kavion

    & I think its good that hes collaborating w/ trey..itll be a crossover hit for him..and he needs at least ONE mainstream song to get out there Im good as long as its not ANOTHER trey sex song

  • Kavion

    My guess is that the album will drop in March/April..that way Lupe,Drake & Cole will compete. He could easily capitalize on the other hip hop albums dropping Cant wait to hear it though! Itll be worth the wait, Cole's just about my favorite Mc right now

JAYZ did it to JOE BUDDEN, did it to Beanie Seigel, YOUNG CHRiS, who else should i have to name... Why be a fan of a nigga that doesn't support the niggas he sign?!

    • gorozsss

      People already know what Jay-Z is and what he's about but yet clueless people wanna continue to support him and deal with him...It's like having sex and making a baby with a hot girl who has herpes yet she looks exactly Beyonce'...She looks like Beyonce' and she has herpes but you'll keep fucking her and it doesn't matter because she's hot forever with a disease she won't be able to get rid of...That's how people treat Jay-Z...Jay could probably shoot and kill someone's brother and some dumb asses will still like him...it's sad to say the least...
